Who would not love to pet and feed a zebra? We had a great time walking around enjoying the animals and seeing them in a close to natural environment. The little petting zoo where you can bottle feed the baby animals is adorable.

It's a drive/ walk thru animal "Safari" without much in the way of animals. Our young grandkids did enjoy the playground( we brought a picnic lunch) animals , petting zoo: the museum ( with a bunch of diorama' s )was the most interesting . Save it for last . Don't bother if you don't have kids in this age group... More

This was a nice family outing, but was expensive to get in. You had the choice of driving around to see the animals, or walking.

We spent a wonderful day here. Ate a picnic lunch right by the zebra. Our 2 year old grandson loved running around and feeding the animals in the petting zoo. Even our 2 nieces age 15 and 4 loved it. Beautiful museum. The gift shop was very reasonably priced. You drive your car around and are encouraged to stop along... More

We walked through the entire park. You can park up on the hill and walk. You have the option to drive through. There's a small barn/petting zoo where you can feed the babies grain for $1 or milk from a bottle for $3. We did both. They had baby goats, a bull and a donkey. The walk/ride area have longhorn...

The good thing is it costs no extra to drive your vehicle around this attraction, but the road around the 'safari' is very rough. You'll see a few deer (but we only saw one of the types), and some birds or ducks, and maybe a turtle at the pond. The fenced corrals have some farm animals, and a zebra, llamas,... More

Well, not a true safari, but this is a drive thru estate where there are many animals out in the fields for viewing. This was a great trip for the boys. After we did our drive, they loved the playscape, and the indoor taxidermy exhibits. Overall, this is unique for the area and a great place for a day trip.

I thought the park was very beautiful and great for small children. The price was very reasonable ($10 for adults) and well worth it to spend a full day there (get there early though because it closes at 4:30p). Its great that they let you bring food and drinks in so you can have a picnic in the beautiful grounds.... More

We recently attended the Joyful Noise wine tasting at the indoor facility and we were amazed at the life size, natural history diorama in this facility. It rivals many museums. What a treat to party along side such majestic creatures, all in our own backyard!

The inside is nice, but a little creepy. It needs to be dusted. Having something with animals sounds would be cool, too. There was a nice drive through "safari" that was cool.... though you see mostly deer. They were cute, though.
